I am soon going to embark on my next major project; namely, a pair of sofa
tables. Each is about 9' long, 16" wide; top frame and apron will be 2
1/2 - 3" wide, 3/4+-" thick. Space between the frames will have tile.
I want the frame and apron pieces to appear seamless so I'll make them from
adjacent pieces cut from the same board. The best way I know of to make
them appear seamless is by mitering the joining edges and there is (may be)
the problem...it is not easy to join miters perfectly especially such long
I'm thinking of cutting the miters, laying a frame and apron face up (miters
down) and taping them tightly together, flip, insert glue, fold together
(sort of like joining veneer pieces). I'll make some small ply clamping
squares to help keep them aligned and perpendicular to each other while the
Anyone see any problem in this? Know of a better way?
Thanks for your input.
